1936

Created by Forrest Mars Sr. in 1936, and first sold in 1937, MALTESERS were originally sold in a box—and were first marketed as ‘energy balls.’

1950s

In 1954, MALTESERS published advertisements premiering the brand’s latest tagline: “More to Munch.” 

2003

In 2003, White MALTESERS were launched as a Seasonal Limited edition. They quickly became a crowd-favourite, prompting our decision to make them available all year round.

2013

In 2013, we had shoppers asking: block or ball? And MALTESERS had the answer: both. With the introduction of MALTESERS Teasers, we successfully created fun new ways to enjoy the great taste of our nationwide favourite chocolate.
